Scabiosa atropurpurea 'Red Knight'
A red form of the Scabiosa atropurpurea that grows rapidly and begins flowering within a few months of settling into the garden. Deadhead to encourage new growth and new flowers over the warmer months. Clean out old woody foliage over winter to allow room for new growth. Best replaced after two or three years with young plants so save some seed or allow seedlings to germinate around the parent. Full sun to part shade. 0.5mH x 0.4mW. Keep lightly moist for best results but will tolerate drier conditions.
